The votes are in for the first annual Sellers Choice Awards for Online Payments! Readers were asked to rate the top six online payment services: Amazon Payments, Google Checkout, PayPal, PayMate, ProPay and Moneybookers (now called Skrill).
And, the top two rated payment services were Google Checkout and Skrill!
Google Checkout was voted the easiest to use payment service for online sellers for, among other things, its fee structure, dispute resolution process and minimal account holds.
"We've put a lot of effort into developing a smooth selling process with Google Checkout, but we hear you that popularity with buyers could be higher. Therefore, we're committed to continuing to get the word out about Checkout and improving the buyer experience. Last year delivered an impressive increase in the number of Checkout customers through Google services such as Android Market, Google eBooks and the Chrome Web Store as well as through Checkout merchants' promotions.
Merchant feedback through surveys like this and directly to our team are important and help us build a better product for buyers and sellers," stated Google.
